About the Course:
Can a professional’s personal feelings and life experiences affect the helping process? This important volume courageously explores this issue and focuses on the use of countertransference—the powerful linkage between a professional’s personal feelings and his/her professional work.
Full of thought-provoking and practical information, When Professionals Weep guides professionals in confronting and examining their own denial, grief, and anger, fears of suffering, deterioration and loss, and their needs for control, love and admiration. Contributors address such issues as how practitioners “overhelp” and “underhelp” some clients because of their feelings and experiences; how personal, societal and family biases can contribute to inappropriate diagnosis, referral, and treatment; why service is prolonged with some and terminated too soon with others.
When Professionals Weep is an easy read—concise, clear, and captivating. Moving case studies are woven throughout and practical tools are provided for immediate use. A “must read” for the seasoned practitioner and novice, alike.
This course is based on the book, When Professionals Weep: Emotional and Countertransference Responses in End-of-Life Care created by Renee S. Katz, PhD, FT and Therese A. Johnson, MA
